Among the first to recognize the potential of 35-mm color photography, Marden
became a pioneer of the new small-format cameras. In 1934 he wrote a book called Color Photography With the Miniature Camera. Two years later he experimented with the first Kodachrome 35-mm film, taking some test shots of a goldfish. He championed this revolutionary new film, touting its clarity and rich colors to his Geographic editors, who soon saw the light. The magazine—and the world of photojournalism—would never be the same.
